Normally, I’m an absolute sucker for “unnecessary romances” because love is great, and I like to see people in love, but I just,,, I really wish I could have gotten through this book, but the romance between Ava and Alex is so infuriatingly out of the blue that I physically can’t bring myself to read any scenes where they’re cuddling or “flirting.” I love Black Widow, and I hoped this would be a good book to psych myself up for the upcoming movie, since the reviews sounded so promising, but the pacing is just,,, :(

An otherwise entertaining spy thriller, "Black Widow: Forever Red" occasionally loses its momentum in portions of this YA novel.

Has a great story but can get dull in some parts.

Juxtaposes Natasha Romanov (whose voice is spot-on) with teen Ava, who has a past very similar to Romanov's yet seems to have something weird happening to her. Together they attempt to thwart a mutual villain, joined by Alex, a similarly gifted teen who has his own secrets and a fate entwined with their own. All three are confused about their identities and have a quick time crunch before a long-reaching plot is set in motion. You know Natasha; she seems to work and think best on her feet!

Fans of the Avengers and particularly middle grade readers will like this book, but older readers may not find as much appeal due to the priority of pacing over credibility for plot/characters.
